Dan Clarke and Amy Pysden are the filmmakers behind Ninti Media. I asked Dan a few questions about their film Saving Warru that’s appearing at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival.
The short film The Prince debuts this coming weekend at the FirstGlance Film Festival. Thought-provoking, inspiring and provocative are just a few of the words that can be used to describe The Prince. Written and directed by Kyra Zagorsky and produced by Patrick Sabongui, the film focuses on a young dancer, Olivia and her uncle Amir, an actor and their struggles with what it means to be Middle-Eastern Americans following a violent, racially charged confrontation on public transportation.
René Ashton is a woman of multiple talents and interests. Her passion for acting has landed her more than 100 commercials and dozens of network television shows.
Directing seemed to be the next natural course of things, so René wrote, produced and directed the short film, SERIAL DATER and most recently completed writing/directing/producing/acting in the web series, 40’S AND FAILING. René co-produced, wrote, directed, and acted in THE CANDLE which is screening at FirstGlance Film Festival in October.
